I am a multidisciplinary artist, silver smith and jewelry designer. I love to create new, unique, eclectic things. I love to rescue, restore & collect vintage & antique jewelry. My grandmother took me to my first estate sale when I was 10 and I've been on the hunt ever since. I religiously frequent estate sales and auctions as the memories I made with my grandmother are so dear to me, and fuel my love of vintage treasures. I also was inspired by my maternal grandmother, who is Cherokee…

I have a gallery & studio space where you can see both my collection of antiquities and my custom made jewelry and artwork in Melbourne, FL. We just opened our new location located at 720 N. Miramar Ave. Indialantic, FL 32909. It's right on the BEACH on SR A1A (beachfront AVE.!) inbetween HairTeck and Long Doggers. You can make your purchases there in person while seeing my collection of vintage and antique jewelry as well as my custom designed pieces, or visit my new website www.HoiPolloiGallery.com. It is not only a website that features my custom work and love for vintage and antique jewelry. But also local artists as well, and is working toward becoming an informational site with bits of knowledge about vintage and antique jewelry.

My favorite part about buying antique beauties and old jewelry is the hunt! I love looking for that forgotten treasure that is looking for a new lease on life, and putting back in the spotlight. I also love getting a great deal, and passing that deal onto others! It's like a high end scavenger hunt, but much more rewarding! As I have been a collector for almost 20 years, I have amassed a huge collection that had begun to overtake my home, and although I am pained to part with any of my much loved pieces, My husband says the collection has pushed the boundaries of "hoarding" lol, but he says it playfully even though it is getting larger than our present space can accommodate, so alas, I am passing on some of my beauties. It's hard to see the pieces go, but as my husband says, I can't wear them all at once, try as I might, and they deserve to be worn more often than I can wear them in rotation :)

In jewelry today, everything is the same, which is why Iove the unique beauty of old vintage and antique jewelry from Art Deco especially, the 1950's and I love the style of the victorian time period. It's also why I started making jewelry myself. I always look for those one of a kind unique pieces that stand out from a crowd, and I couldn't find that in modern jewelry stores, so I decided to make them myself! I hope you enjoy all my treasures as much as I enjoyed hunting and creating them.

Also, feel free to contact me about making you own designed piece! Pick your own stone and setting, and all those special little details.
